   Dear Mari,
   I am new to everything except this life; the net, genealogy, and the
Sellers page.
I need help. I am quite sure that my gggrandfather Richard Sellars is from
the William, Benjamin, Matthew, etc line in Brunswick Co. NC. Richard was
born 27 May 1788 in Duplin Co. NC (This is engraved on his stone in Sellars
Cemetery, Ellaville, Schley Co. Ga where he died Oct 1860.) His first wife
was a Williams according to my grandfather James Richard Sears Sellars. His
2nd wife who he married in 1849 when he was 61 yrs old was a widow
Elizabeth
Parker b1810. I have most all the family information since that time but my
search stops with Richard's birth. My grandfather told me that he thought
Richard had two brothers. Richard's sons were named Stephen Andrew, David
William, Benjamin, James Compton, Jacob and Joseph. If I can place Richard
in one of the NC families then I can take advantage of all the research
that
has been done on them and go right on back. Maybe someone can help me.
Thank
you very much.  James Richard Sellars 17420 Co Rd 9, Summerdale AL, 36580 


JAMES, thanks for sharing - We need the ages and where these kids born=
We need to read the 1850 census on Marion Co,GA
and the 1860 SCHLEY CO, GA census
In 1870 Schley we have Horrace Sellars born 1835 GA
Stephen SELLERS born 1822 NC
David SELLERS born 1826 NC
But in 1830 the only place I could find a RICHARD SELLERS was Wayne Co,TN
and also a Robert SELLERS which could belong to Darla?
1783 DUPLIN CO, NC = ISOM, JACOB, SAMUEL SELLERS - believe this is the Old
Jacob born
before 1720's and his son Isom born 1754 Duplin
1790 ISAM and JACOB SELLERS are in Sampson Co
These counties lay next to each other and were made from each other - Also
New Hanover-
1790 DUPLIN = JAMES SOLLUS = 2-1-2 (2 MALES OVER 16 AND 1 UNDER16)
1800 DUPLIN = ELIJAH SELLERS, =10100-00100-00
1810 DUPLIN = ELIJAH SILLAN, PAGE 14 (Read these census for ages)
JACOB SELLARS, PAGE 21
JOHN SELLERS, PAGE 16
SIMEON SUTTON, PAGE 26

1820 DUPLIN CO, NC =
RICHARD SELLERS, PAGE 204
ELIJAH SILTERS, PAGE 192
I didn't see a NC marriage in Duplin  - his GA marriage = Richard
SELLERS/ELIZABETH ANN
PARKER on 5-1-1849 Marion Co,GA

1840 MARION CO, GA =
RICHARD SELLERS, PAGE 60
JAMES CULLARS, PAGE 253

1850 MARION CO, GA =
RICHARD CELLARS, PAGE 254
DAVID SALLES, PAGE 253

WAR OF 1812 = RICHARD SELLERS - CPL 4th Regmt and Pri Maj  Lillingtons
Detachment. WILLIAM
SELLERS is also listed in both of these units, but, I believe he was a
private in both.
I would ORDER both of these files for ANY info they may have - IF you need
help, advise -
Will make some pages for these counties and link your name to them and if
you get any
leads - send us copy of letter. Richard SELLERS is not listed in my land
deeds as mine
only go to 1804 - WE need to read the 1804 to 1820 or whatever is next.for
land deeds.

   Thank you so much for all the information and suggestions. I don't know
how to go about obtaining the military records from 1812. Here is all I
have
on the children of Richard and his first wife who I think was a Williams.
All the children born before 1835 were born in NC and all after then were
born in GA. They had twelve children and he and Elizabeth Ann Parker (2nd
wife) had one, Frances M. b. 1849.

   Eliza b. 1817 m John T. Devane

   Stephen A. b. 1822 d. 10 Nov 1897 in Schley Co. GA never married (NM)

   Anna Jane b. 1824 d. 1904          "            "          "

   David Wm  b. 1825 d. 1882 in Pike Co Al m.Ann Ida Clark 1834-1907

   Benjamin  b. 1828   NM

   J. Compton 1830-1882 NM

   Mary Susan b. 1833 d. 8 Jan 1911 NM

   Jacob  b. 1835  NM

   Sarah A. 1836-1861

   Amanda Caroline b. 1838

   Julia Virginia b. 1839 d. 1906 m. William Thomas Eason

   Joseph W. b. 1842  m. His stepsister Susan Jane b 1839 or Mary Priscilla
Parker
                      b 1844 and supposedly moved to FL

   I don't know who the Horrace Sellars is in Schley Co Census but Richard
is my gggrandfather and David is my ggrandfather. David left Schley Co in
1871 and moved to Barbour Co, Al, then west to Pike Co. Al, where he died
in
1882 south of Troy between Henderson and Troy. The family eventually moved
on down to Covington Co. Al.
   Thank you very much for all your help. I think I am the only one
searching this line.. James Richard Sellars 334-988-8812
